Shoebox Packing Party

We met at 6 and enjoyed hot dogs/ chili, chips, cake and brownies to give us the energy to fill the boxes, haha. We have gathered specific items every month to put in the shoeboxes. These boxes are sent overseas to poor countries through Franklin Graham’s ministry, Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry. We place the following items in each box from age 2-14, male and female. Socks, Ivory soap and washcloth, toothbrush and toothpaste, pencil box, pencils, pens, sharpeners, erasures, glue stick, crayons, markers, age appropriate toys, stuffed animal and bag of candy. Obviously the boxes are full! We had 17 come to fill the boxes and they all prayed over the boxes and the children who would receive them. Samaritan’s Purse ministers to the children when they get the boxes, and giving them a booklet printed in their language. Our church feels we are participants in this mission ministry and glad to spend the money and time it takes to make our part successful. We filled 200 shoeboxes this year! Praise God!fullsizerender-copy-16
